"Yeah this Confederate Series sounds like a bad idea. "


  

          

Doesn't sound like the way you want to follow-up Game of Thrones

http://www.nbcnews.com/pop-culture/tv/game-thrones-creators-craft-alt-reality-post-civil-war-america-n784696

I think a project like that should only be helmed by a black person and even then every misstep is still going to cause a lot of outrage.

Maybe a book series that if it does well, get's made into a series. But out the box TV Series which such a topic just because they pulled off Game of Thrones? Nahh.
